Summer Reading List

Click here for 2019-2020 Battle of the Books Reading List!

Battle of the Books is an exciting reading competition for ALL Reed students. Students form teams who, as a group, read all 20 titles in the Battle of the Books list over the next 6 months. Teams battle in a Family Feud type competition, where two teams face-off answering questions of the type: “In which book did one of the characters suddenly see the color red?” Answer: The Giver by Lois Lowry. Reed will sponsor a school competition in early March. Get started on your reading this summer!

Message From Principal Gamba

Dear Walter Reed Middle School Families,

It is with mixed emotions that I write to let you know that I will be taking on a new opportunity in the coming school year, working with the Certificated Performance Evaluation Support (CPES) Unit.  While I look forward to the experience, I know that I will miss the relationships that I have built here over the years, and am proud of all of the great work that we have accomplished together.

Mr. Freddy Ortiz will be the principal of Walter Reed Middle School beginning July 1, 2019.  For the past seven years Mr. Ortiz has been the principal of San Fernando Middle School and I look forward to welcoming him to our school community.

Thank you for all your support over the years; I have every confidence that our community will continue to grow and thrive and wish you nothing but the best in the days to come!

Sincerely,

Jeanne Gamba

en español:

Estimadas Familias de la Escuela Secundaria Walter Reed,

Es con emociones mezcladas, que les escribo para dejarles saber que he aceptado tomar una nueva posición el año escolar que viene, trabajando con la Unidad Certificada de Apoyo al Maestro en base de Rendimiento y Evaluación.  Mientras que espero, con mucha anticipación esta nueva oportunidad, sé que extrañare las amistadas que he construido sobre los anos, y estoy muy orgullosa del gran trabajo que hemos logrado juntos.

El Sr. Freddy Ortiz comenzara como director de la Escuela Secundaria Walter Reed el primero de julio del año presente.  Durante los últimos siete años, el Sr. Ortiz ha sido director de la Escuela Secundaria San Fernando y espero con mucha anticipación darle la bienvenida, a él, a nuestra comunidad escolar.

Muchas gracias, de todo corazón, por todo el apoyo que me han brindado durante los años, y confió que nuestra comunidad continuara a crecer y a prosperar, y les deseo todo lo mejor en los días por venir.

Muy sinceramente,

Jeanne Gamba

Directora
